Dial Up and Digital Camera

by elaljo / February 27, 2008 12:06 PM PST

I recently got a Gateway with Vista. It took my about two weeks but I finally think I figured out how to email pix from my camera. My question is does it normally take about ten minutes to send one pix? I'm probably just doing something wrong and just don't know what. Any advice?

Where are the pictures stored?

Right click each one and choose Properties. It'll tell you the size. For dial-up, anything over 50 KB in size will take forever. I've seen friend's pictures that are over a Meg in size.

One way to fix that is to change the resolution on the camera to a lower setting/resolution. Something around 800 X 600 is more than adequite for email.

You can resize the picture later after you stick it on the computer and before you email it. Until you figure out how to redo the camera settings, this could help. It does take forever to upload a very large picture. I have a photo uploader that helps a little.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
